Financial Center Collecting Canned Goods for ‘Pack the Pantries’

Financial Center Federal Credit Union is proud to be participating in Fox 59’s Pack the Pantries canned food drive this holiday season. The Credit Union is collecting canned food at its eight Indianapolis-area locations now through December 14.

At the center of Financial Center’s ‘people helping people’ mission is the credit union’s commitment to feeding the hungry in the communities it serves. The locally-owned credit union has been a major supporter of the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry for the past seven years donating numerous volunteer hours and over $56,000. Since 2013, Financial Center expanded its association with local pantries to include The Cupboard of Lawrence Township, Meals on Wheels and Kids Against Hunger.

Pack the Pantries was organized by Fox 59 and the Mayor’s Office of the Front Porch Alliance, Gleaner’s Food Bank, and the Midwest Food Bank. All canned goods collected during the donation period will be donated to Midwest Food Bank, which serves as a distribution center for several of the local food banks.

Those wishing to make a canned food donation can do so at any Financial Center branch as well as Blended Church, Renewal by Andersen of Indiana, Pearson Automotive or TCC Verizon Wireless location.
